Oldham Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) are celebrating their one-year anniversary playing an integral role in improving access to lifesaving tests and checks and bringing down NHS waiting lists.
Dionne Johnson, CDC unit manager, said: “I have been working at the Oldham CDC since it opened and I am so proud of the role we are playing in helping patients receive rapid diagnostics. We have seen more than 30,000 patients since we opened our doors a year ago with plans to increase the diagnostics undertaken to over 55,000 in the next year.
“Undergoing any kind of diagnostic can be an anxious time for patients, and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, reflecting that we have created a caring and supportive environment away from the busy hospital site.
“Thanks to all my colleagues and our partners for your dedication and hard work, making the Oldham CDC such a success in its first year.”
